Looking closer at the picture you mentioned (which Chris posted earlier in this thread), I see what you mean, but I think the bottom "fin" near the ring may be an optical illusion (see the color photos below). In the second photo below, that dark area appears to be part of the "support structure" (the trailer).

But yes, the two canards show up quite clearly. I also see a couple of exterior fins attached horizontally on the ring fin.

Jay, this would be a very cool project! Same as Chas I don’t recall ever seeing this missile.
Thanks Chris Timm for the additional info. Very interesting indeed!

So this was my Independence Day diversion. I wrestling with this file early this morning, but I wasn't having any success using (the late) Bruce Levison's tube fin "hack" technique.

Late this afternoon, I remembered the "ringtail" option, which seemed to actually work.

Now this evening, I've done about all I can do, so here's the roughed out mockup.

I used the Semroc BNC-50BC from my Estes Wolverine 0816 clone (13mm), while substituting a 15" long Semroc ST-9 body tube for the Estes BT-50, but I used a 1.25" long BT-80 for the ring fin.

I plan to upscale this to BT-55, which means I'll need to fabricate the resulting ring fin.

Please post any comments you might have. Thanks in advance!

Appear to be a total of 6 fins in the ring, with two extending outside the ring horizontally. That black piece hanging down in the picture while on the transport dolly may be the mount used to attach the Missile to the F4U wing.
